Hour of Code
It's Technology Thursday! Linking with Teaching Trio!
Have you heard about the Hour of Code? It's a global project where students can try coding...you know, computer programming! It really makes kids think critically and helps them see how technology is created. Teachers can sign up their class to work on it. It's up to you if you want to do the hour or the complete set of puzzles. Here are some resources to get you started.
Kids work on puzzles to create the code. They put the blocks in the correct order to make the icon move. This year, they created an Anna and Elsa (from Frozen) set of puzzles to encourage girls to code,
When the kids are done, they get a certificate of completion. You and your students can also win prizes. They also leave with another career option under their belt. Maybe you have the next Steve Jobs in your midst?
